Automation insights and productivity tips from LEAPWORK.
Today, digital transformation affects businesses in every market. Either they are driving it or being driven by it. As new business models emerge and customer demands keep increasing, enterprises everywhere struggle to stay relevant.
In the jungle of automation tools, it can be complicated to select the right one for your enterprise. This is why we have listed 9 reasons to choose no-code automation tools in a factsheet, just for you. No-code automation tools speed up business processes and reduce errors while limiting boring and repetitive work.
If you’re a highly skilled programmer wanting to automate web applications, and you love to spend time on writing test scripts, Selenium is probably a good test automation tool for you.
Are you tired of manual testing and are you considering using Selenium to accelerate your software testing?
In the early 2000s, a test engineer named Jason Huggins came up with an idea.
Do you want to learn more about the role of BDD in software development? Is BDD right for you?
When we talk about agile, most testers like the idea of it and what it brings to the work space - that is, working efficiently and being responsive to customers and users. However, automating tests at this development speed is a strenuous endeavor.
Software testing consists of a number of different types of tests. These can easily be confused due to their resemblance and seemingly overlapping purposes.
Regression testing is the process of checking a software system for bugs or regressions that have occurred in existing code after introducing new code.
Although regression testing is an essential part of the testing process, some software development teams choose to only run tests on specific code changes, under the assumption that if the new part of the software works, then the rest of it will as well.
Regression testing is a core part of quality assurance and software testing. This type of testing is key to ensuring a great end-user experience. Yet, some testers rush the process or skip it entirely because it is time-consuming.
Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) was carefully developed to support agile development in the software industry. This is because agile cannot be fully deployed if the testing process still follows a traditional methodology.
Faced with frequent product releases and system upgrades, there is increasing pressure on the resources used in software testing. One small change or upgrade can affect the whole software within seconds meaning that, if the functionality is not being continuously tested as per design, a single bug could have a tremendous effect on user experience.
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is no new concept in the software development industry. Still, many companies don’t fully understand the benefits of this framework in the development process. In a world where traditional development methodologies have excluded team members in silos, BDD serves as a collaborative force that fosters agile development.
Usually, in this blog, we tend to look at the LEAPWORK Automation Platform from a user perspective. We talk about how to automate different kinds of work processes and we also give you a few tips and tricks every now and then. However, we’ve recently made some changes to the core engine, so we thought it would be interesting to look into the engine room for a change. Buckle up because we’re about to get a little technical.
In order to improve testing processes and transform them into an efficient and cost-effective part of software development, companies are introducing concepts such as agile, DevOps, or BDD in their teams. The rising adoption of these frameworks is slowly shrinking the gap between IT and business, allowing for more collaboration and continuous delivery. In order to facilitate this collaboration, automation has been brought into play.
In a traditional software development process, developers write programs and build features, and testers then test the written pieces of software. However, businesses are now operating at a faster pace and, therefore, software development needs to keep up with business demands.
There are several methodologies available for implementation in software testing. However, not all require the same effort to create and maintain these tests. If you need to run the same tests, but with different parameter values, then you can easily do this through Data-driven testing (DDT).
Software is continuously evolving through changes, updates, and bug fixes. However, even the smallest of the changes can have a domino effect in an application’s source code.
Faced with frequent product releases and system upgrades, there is increasing pressure on resources used in software testing. While manual testing through the user interface (UI) can be time-consuming, one way, as we all know by now, to free up tester hours is to automate.
The introduction of agile methodologies has allowed software developers to ensure quality while decreasing production times and streamlining the development process. Within this methodology, testing has taken center stage to align development with customer needs.
Testing continuously at multiple stages of the release pipeline supports delivery of high-quality software. Here’s how to pick an automation solution for your Continuous Testing needs.
To keep up with the ever-increasing customer expectations to digital products and services, software providers are under pressure to be more and more thorough in their quality assurance of products. Learn how Continuous Testing can support those efforts.
Digital transformation of businesses is not only necessary, but it is also happening. One of the effects this has is that many business-related operations are dependent on an ever-increasing number of platforms, systems, and applications. Testing and end-to-end testing are essential to risk reduction; however many cite high costs as a reason to focus on other testing forms. The key to solving this lies in automation. Read more about why you should automate end-to-end tests in this article.
